Pet Therapy Society

Pet Therapy at EIA

EIA is excited to welcome some furry and very friendly visitors! EIA has teamed up with the Pet Therapy Society of Northern Alberta for a trial project. The society currently services local hospitals, schools and correctional facilities using pet therapy to calm nerves and brighten the day of those who meet them. Currently they have over 60 trained therapy animals including dogs, cats and even rabbits!
